How beautiful, Ian!! It's almost the danish flag. I love Copenhagen, as a medical student I lived and studied there... and I miss it. Thanks for your photos (I'll keep this one, btw)

Best regards, JJ

Dear GGR,

When creating a travel album, I find the photos of details bring the whole album to life, so it is important to me to record elements like this. It is also an avenue for me to express myself as well.

Well JJ that is a new disclosure. Somehow some time, I'd love to learn more about the life journey of my artistic mentor. I am delighted, of course, that you like this, and honoured that you have tucked it away.

Warm regards to you both, on this Australia's National Day. A little Danish patriotism won't hurt today, as after all, I do have Schleswig-Holstein ancestors.

Greetings Ian, Thanks for visiting the Kilt in the hills photo. I am honored. I like the simplicity of this photograph, simply beautiful. It could be art hanging in a gallery. Have a good one.

Dear Rich,

I have printed your kilt image and have it in a folder of Panoramio portraits! And I am pleased that you have commented on the simplicity of this image. due to your comment I have added the 'art' tag to it, though at the time I was thinking of it being art, but merely as 'detail' that expressed a lot for me. Like essence of the place.

Kind regards,


Ian Stehbens on January 28, 2009

Thanks Jeff. The Danes are very disciplined and their landscapes are all very attractively presented, whether urban or rural. I am pleased you like this detail.

Kind regards,


Ian Stehbens on January 28, 2009

Mira, I really value your insights and affirmations. Thanks indeed, dear friend.

Warm regards,

Very known place, and excellent shot!

Ian as to your request, I have added some Petropavlovsk views: Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Olga

Ian Stehbens on January 30, 2009

Thanks for generously uploading Petropavlovsk images to excite my curiosity, Olga. I have enjoyed them. And I am pleased that we connect on a place we have both been as well.

Very artistic picture. I love the coloures and geometric elements.

Greetings from Bavaria, Martin

Ian Stehbens on January 31, 2009

Hi Martin and Gab,

Your comments are appreciated. It wasn't until Richard Ryer commented that it was art that I saw it that way. At the time of photographing, I appreciated the detail for it told me what the whole building was like and defined the urban landscape of this part of Copenhagen for me. The colours and design are special.

Best regards,

Colour and geometry--and the right colours for Denmark! A simple detail becomes art!

Ian Stehbens on February 8, 2009

I am pleased that you responded to this one, Marilyn. It is one of our special connecting points when colour and geometry combine. But I am very surprised that GE reviewer accepted it.

Kindest regards,


Marilyn Whiteley on February 8, 2009

Speaking of GE, isn't it surprising that this photo of mine was accepted?? Marilyn

A simple but lovely shot Ian.....nicely done.

Greetings Arthur

Ian Stehbens on May 24, 2010

This image was very much an 'iconic representation of Denmark' for me, while being a study of detail. I enjoyed the brightness of the red that is common on many of their buildings, urban as well as rural. The red and white seems so Danish, so it summarises my memory or perception of some of the uniqueness of place.

I appreciate your response to it, Arthur.

Warm regards,
